Are we really THAT rare?

My PC is eight years old and still does everything I ask of it, including working with raw files from the D850 in Photoshop, using a 27" 4K monitor. It probably couldn't run the latest games, but that's OK with me as I don't play anything more demanding than World of Warcraft. Of course, during the time I've had it, I've increased the memory, upgraded the graphics card and put a bigger SSD in it, but the GPU is the same old first generation i7 processor. I don't think Apples can be upgraded in a like fashion, but I don't really know, having never even owned an Apple product. Personally, I wouldn't want an all-in-one machine as if it goes belly up, you have lost the monitor as well. You pays your money and takes your choice.

And to go back to thread, I haven't seen a Pentax in the wild since I was in Toronto in 2016.

With regard to image quality, the Pentax K-1 is up there with the best full frame cameras, and not much touches it in pixel shift mode for static subjects. I have a K-1 and Nikon D810 and D850.

Contact for the battery, yes, but not for the SD card, which was what the query was about.

I'm just guessing, but I suspect that Pentaxians are a tad more individualistic than the people who buy Canikony. Thus, we're bound to have wildly differing opinions about what our ideal camera would look like. :D

rumored Pentax mirrorless camera - something between K1000 and K-01
Posted By Cynog Ap Brychan

This thread has grown since I last visited it, and I haven't read all the intervening posts, so please forgive me if someone has already raised similar points. Am I the only one who would see no problem in a mirrorless camera with a similar size and form to current DSLRs, particularly the Pentax K-3, which I find a very agreeable size and heft? This would make retaining the K mount a no-brainer. I haven't held a Fuji XT-2, but from looking at one in a camera store window, it doesn't seem much smaller than a K-3, apart from the thickness of the body, and one needs to add the battery grip to get a fully functioning camera it seems to me, which greatly adds to its size. I bought the Olympus M1 and M5 a couple of years ago, and although they were reasonably capable cameras, I hated them for their small size and fiddly buttons. I don't have large hands, so that has nothing to do with it. Perhaps a DSLR-type mirrorless would be a hard marketing sell, but I would love to see one.

They seem to regard the K-S2 as better (possibly better value for money) - Top 10 Best APS-C Digital SLRs 2016

How else could one explain the Nikon D7200 being ranked over the D500?

I disagree (to some extent). I find the tilt screen on the K-1 most useful when I'm taking macro and close up photos in my studio, especially when I'm using the camera in portrait mode when the small amount of tilt available saves me having to bend over too far. At my age, that's important! I've never used the tilt on any other occasions.

A lot of Nikon lenses went up significantly recently in the UK. Can't speak for Canon or Fuji as I haven't been following them, but their top end cameras aren't cheap, either.

Back in the film days my favourite lens was the Pentax 24 mm, so I have been long hoping for a modern version. However, I reckon a 20 mm would do nicely being a bit wider but, with the 36 Mpx of the K-1, there is ample scope to crop to a 24 mm FoV if needed. So in my view, 20 mm would be the sweet spot.

Possibly, but normally one wants a fair depth of field in landscapes, so one is often better served by a tripod and a smaller aperture. Maybe it's just me, but I've never worried unduly about corner sharpness, even in landscapes, as long as it isn't glaringly obvious.
